Arctic Spa Avalanche, Seven Person Jetted Hot Tub. Ready year round

For larger groups, also rent the home next door, 'Serenity on the Bluff' (beds for 20, VRBO listing #79030) with the two homes, there are beds for thirty two people.

Also known as 'Tranquility on the Bluff'. The home received its' name, because it is located in an area of Yates County, known as Bluff Point. Bluff Point is the peninsula what separates the East and West branches of Keuka Lake. Long ago the shores of Bluff Point were surrounded with vineyards and dotted with steamboat landings to ferry people and agricultural products to the three towns on Keuka Lake. Over time the vineyards were abandoned and were gradually replaced with campsites, seasonal cottages and year round homes.

The home was built in 1996 and has approximately 2000 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms and three full baths, living room, dining area, and kitchen area, recreation room, and a large partially-covered deck. The home faces west to enjoy the fabulous sunsets. Also the home is located near the end of the peninsula that separates the East and West branches of Keuka Lake.

The main floor has an open floor plan that includes the living room, dining area, kitchen, cathedral ceiling, and skylights. In additionally there are three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a queen-size bed and overlooks Keuka Lake. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and overlooks Keuka Lake. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed and is on the back side of the home and has its own private full bathroom with a shower. Off the main hall is a full bathroom with a tub/shower. Off the dining area is a fabulous, partially-covered deck. The deck is furnished with two, five foot by five foot square glass top tables and chairs, small sofa style love set and two matching chairs and foot rests, and a two person swing bench. The jetted hot tub/spa is also on the deck. The deck is surrounded by a fenced in railing with latch-able gates. The deck faces the lake and is fantastic for dining, relaxing, and enjoying the breath-taking Keuka Lake sunsets.

The lower level has a bedroom, recreation/game room, full bathroom with a shower and utility room with two washers and two dryers. The bedroom has a king-size bed, and a sliding glass door that faces the Keuka Lake. The recreation/game room is equipped with two day beds with trundles. In addition, the recreation/game room has two large windows facing Keuka Lake.

The home and yard is surrounded on three sides by woods. There large off-street parking area for at least six vehicles. The parking area is at the end of a long semi-private driveway and within 20 feet of the house. Also, on the lawn there is a fire ring, surrounded by benches. This is a fantastic place to spend a romantic evening or gather with your family and roast marshmallows under the stars.

Access to the lake is located in front of the home via a sloping path and at the shoreline a set of 17 steps build into the bank. The shoreline consists of a natural unspoiled shoreline, with a small area with chairs, a forty plus foot dock and swim raft. From the shoreline the water has a very gradual increase in depth as one walks into the lake. The lake bottom is hard and consists of shale, stones and rocks of various sizes. Water shoes, sneakers or other feet protection are recommended due to the shale and zebra mussels.

Bed summary: One King, Three Queens, and Four Single Beds.

The home includes; pillows, comforters and blankets. The home does not include linens or towels. Linens, towels, and face cloths are available for rent; Peak Season for $120.00. Off Season, Preseason, or Post Season for $10.00 Per Person.

There is a 4% Yates County Lodging Tax on the rental fee and house cleaning fee of $125.00, and a refundable security deposit of $250.00.

The Perfect s, etc.etting!!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect setting for our weekend away with close friends from nursing school. The view was breathtaking, morning, afternoon and evening....sunsets especially beautiful. The house provided all the amenities to make this effortless and cozy...the kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishware, bakeware, and pots and pans....making it simple and fun to cook and serve all 9 of us.It could easily handle a group of 12. The hot tub was warm and running upon our arrival, welcoming us. The photos posted gave an accurate description of the property. We found it clean, very well maintained and welcoming. We have already agreed unanimously to return next year, same time. The kayaking was amazing...you must do while there, although sitting on the dock at sunset was also very peaceful and relaxing. The owner's efforts were appreciated from providing firewood to firing up the hot tub before our arrival. We also enjoyed lunch and a bit of eclectic shopping in Hammondsport on our way home.

Great Property, Extremely Pleased

  • 5 of 5

We were there for the 5 night deal (pay for 3, get 5) in mid September, a total of 3 couples. Bill, the owner, provides all the extras that we usually have to bring with us. Plenty of kitchen amenities such as paper towels, dishwasher detergent, liquid detergent,coffee filters, 2 coffee pots, tons of dishes, cutlery, pots and pans,even muffin tins. There are 2 HC washers and 2 HC dryers and laundry detergent is provided. We brought our own linens,but u can rent if you want. Initially a little hard to find but once you are there the awesome view, the privacy of the property, the large hot tub with a view of the night sky were terrific. The west bluff of Keuka Lake is awesome. Sunsets fantastic. Very private, homes not on top of each other. Yes, you have to walk down a hill to get to the lake but it wasn't that difficult. We have been coming to the Finger Lakes for 18 years and this is one of the best properties we have stayed at. We have already booked again for next year.

my opinion

  • 2 of 5

Just returned from our stay and I have to say I was disappointed. The water was awful, the furniture extremely uncomfortable and the access to the lake very hard. Not exactly what it was portrayed to be.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Bill,

Sorry I wrote my first review for your other place(Serenity on the Bluff), my apologies.

Anyway, Tranquility on the Bluff was awesome and is very family friendly. The hot tub was awesome on the cool November nights. We would recommend this place to anyone. Might give it a try sometime with our boat(the fishing sounds good on Keuka). If you need references anytime, don't hesitate to cal us.

Thanks again,

Steve & Kelly Walter

Great View! Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with close friends for 5 days and nights. The pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful view! Plenty of room! Clean, quiet, and comfortable! Spending time in the huge hot tub looking at the million of stars above was one of the highlights of the vacation! Would recommend this property for multiple couples, entire families, and 4 or more friends travelling together. The owner was very accomodating with any questions or concerns.
